Every Time I Thought of You

Hello dear friends!! I was home from work last Wednesday because we had a blizzard with over a foot fallen (as well as many tree branches because it was a wet heavy snow!) - and so I got to stamp!


I combined 3 SCS challenges for my card - the weekly sketch, the Teaparty challenge (gold & flowered teapot) as well as the color challenge (use 3 shades of pink)

I gold embossed my Bed of Roses stamp by Rubbernecker on the framed panel. I made my flowers from mulberry paper - cutting a circle into a swirl and rolling it up starting at the outside edge. Then I cut my sentiment with a scalloped Nestie tag adhereing it with foam tape and added a ribbon. I sponged the edges of both the embossed panel and the tag with Antique Linen Distress ink.

This card will be going to Katie Renz who was the Destination Station for the Teapot challenge - you can see her story here. You can also find details on purchasing a great combination of digital stamps with proceeds benefiting Katie on Jak Heath's Blog post here.
You can find my tutorial for making the flowers on this post here
